I wrote a game like that using pygsear:

It is all written in python, using the pygame extension which I
know runs on Linux and Windows and I believe will work on
OS X also. It is all open source and Free.

You would need python, pygame, pygsear and pygsear-games.

The reason I wrote it is I wanted to use pieces w/ more than 4
blocks, so it is extensible to use any shape/ size pieces you want.
There is also a "kidtris" game included which uses big pieces
made of fewer blocks.
